PREFACE. 



IT IS a moft invaluable part of that blcflcd " I'lhfrty noiffretoit 
Chk isr'hatb made ui frecy'' that, in his worihip, diiierer 
fsrms and ujag:z may without offence be allowed, provided th 
fubfiance of the faith be kept entire j and that, in every Chiircl 
what cannot be clearly determined to belong to doSirlne mufl I 
referred to difciplint'^ and therefore, Uy common confent and authc 
rity, may be altered, abridged, enlarged, amended, or otherwi: 
difpofcd of, as may feem mofl convenient for the edification < 
the people, " according to the various exigencies of times ar 
©ccafiona," 

The Church of Ens lakd, to which theProteftantr.p»rcop 
Church in thefe States is indebted, under GOD, for heV lii 
foundation and a long continuance of nurfingc^re and prote£tioi 
liath* in the Preface of her Book of Common Prayer, laid it dovs 
as a rale, that ** The particular Forms of Divine Worfhip, and tl^ 
Ritfes and Ceremonies appointed to be u fed therein, being thifigs i 
their own nature indifferent and alterable, and fo acknowledge* 
It is but reafonable that, upon weighty and important confiderj 
tions, according to the various exigencies of times and occ^on 
fuch changes and alterations fliould be made therein, as to tho 
who are in places of authority flioald, ffom time to time, feei 
«icher neceffary or expedient. 

The fame Church hath not only in htr Pfefdcey but likewi 
In her y^rrij/^i and tlomUksy declared the neccffity and expedient 
of occafional alterations and amendments in her Forms of Publ 
Worihip j and we find accordingly, that, fceking to ** keep tl 
happy msan between too much ftiffnefs irt rsfujing and too muc 
tajinefs in admitting variations in things once advifedly cftabliihe 
ihc hath, in the reign of feveral Princes^ (ince the firft compilii 
©f her Liturgy in the time of Edward the Sixth, upon juft ai 
weighty fonfidwatisnsher ihcrcunto moving, yi«li«d to make fu<

Tke PREFACE. 

lAterafiOAfl in fome particulars, at in their refpe^^Ive tiAaes were 
t)|oaght convenient : Yet fo as the main body and efTential part» 
q£ the fa"!nc (as well in the chiefcft materials, as in the frame PJid 
#rder thereof) have itili been continoed firm a^d unlhaken.'* 

** Hct general ami in thefe dlfTcrent rnrk^ws and afteratknt 
lltthbeen," as fhe further declares in her faid Preface, ** to do thaC 
which, according to her bcft undcrftanding, might moil tend to the 
|»refervacion of peace^and urity in the Church j the procuring of re- 
verence, and the exciting of piety and aevotion in the worlhipof 
Cod J and, finally, tlic c utting off occaiion, from them that fcekoc* 
eafion, of cavil or quarrel againft her Liturgy.*' And although^ 
■according to her judgment, there be not ** any thing in it contrary 
to the Word of God, or to found d3<^ine, or which a godly maa 
may not with a good confcience ufe and fubmit unto, or which is 
not fairly defenfihle, if alh^wed fsch juft and favourable con- 
ilruAion, as, in common equity, ought to be allowed to all hu- 
man writings ," yet upon the principles already laid down, it can- 
not but be fuppofed, that further alteration would in time be 
louPid expedient. Accordingly, a Conimifiion for a review wa3 
ifiued in the year 16S9 : But this great and good work mifcarrici 
flt that tim^-5 and the Civil Authority has not fmce thought pro- 
|«r to revive it by any fiew CommiiTion. 

But when, lo the courfe of Divine Providence, thefe Arifterjcaa 
States htzzmc independent with refpe£t to Civil Government, their 
£.cclefiafikal Independence was neceifarily included ^ and the diffe- 
rent religious denominations of Chriftians in thefe States were lefc 
at full and equal liberty to model and organize their refpeftive 
churches and forms of worfhip and difcipline, in fuch manner at 
they might judge moll^ convenient for their future profperity 5 con- 
fiftently with the Conffitution and Laws of their Country, 

The attention of this Church was, in the firft place, drawn 
to thofe alterations in the Liturgy which became neceflary in the 
Prayen for our Civil Rulers, in confequence of the Revolution. 
And the principal care herein was to make them conformable to 
what ought to be the proper end of all fuch prayers, namely, that 
** Rulers naay have grace, wifdom, and underftanding to execute 
jufticc, and to maintain truth j and chat the People may lead quiet 
and peaceable live«, \% all godliaefs and honelly.'* 

t 4 ]B«t 



The P R E F A C E. 

But while thefe alterations were in review before the Con- 
tention, they could not but, with gratitude to God, embrace 
the .happy occ alien, wbich^wa^ offered to them (uninfiuenced and 
unreftrained by any woridly authority whapfocver) to. take a fur« 
ther review of the Public Ser'vicey and to eitablifh fuch other alte- 
rations and amendments, tlierein as might be deemed expedient* ■ 

It feems unnecgfiary to enumerate all the different alterations, 
and amendments. They will appear, and it is to be hoped, the 
reafons of them alfo, upon a comparifon of this with the Book of 
Common Prayer of the Church of England. In which it will alfo 
appear, that this Church is far from intending to depart from the 
Church of Eagiand in any ellential point of doctrine, difcipline, 
VV worliiip j or farther than local clrcumltanccs require. 

And now, this important work being brought to a conclufion, 
St is hoped the whole will be received and examined by every truc^ 
JVlembtif of our Church, and every fincere Chriftian, vyith a meek, 
cand'.a, and charitable frame of mind j without prejudice or pre- 
pofle/Tions ^ ferioufiy conGdering what Chriftianity is, and what the, 
trutiis 01 the Gofpei are , and earneilly befeechirig Almighty God, ' 
to accompany with his bleliing every endeavour for promulgating ■ 
them to mankind in the cleareft, plaineil;, moft afTeci:in,g and ma^^ 
jellic manner, for the fake of Jefus Chrift, our bieifed Lord and* 
Saviour,

Jefus : who being in the form of 
God, thought it not robbery to 
be eq-ial with God ; but made 
Jiirnfelf of no reputation, and 
took upon him the form of a 
fervant, and was made in the 
ijkei.efs of men : and beihg 
found in fafhion as a man, he 
tumbled himfelf, and became 
obedient unto death, even the 
* death of the -crofs. Wherefore 
God al^o hath highly exalted 
him, and given him a Name 
which Is above every name \ that

And he caft down the pieces of 
^Ivcr in the tem^h^ and depart-

And the chief priefis took the

T hen releafed he Barabbas unto

ANdftraightway in the morn- 
ing, the Aief priefts held 
a confultation with' the elders 
and fcribes, and the whole 
council, and bound jefus, and 
carried him away, and delivered 
him to Piiatc. And Pilate afked 
him, Art thou the King of the 
Jews ? And he anTwering, fsid 
unto him, Thou fayeft it. And 
the chief priefts accufed him of 
many things t but he anfwered 
nothing. A«d Pilate afked him 
again, faying, Anfwereft thou 
nothing ? behold how many 
things they witncfs againft thee. 
But Jcfus yet anfwered nothing : 
fo that FUate marvelled. Now 
•t t|;iat teaft he rcieafed unto 
them one prifoner, whomfoever 
they defired. And tli^re was 
one named Barabhas, which lay 
bound with them that had made 
infurrcdion with him, who had 
co»»iued murdci* in tns iarur- 



re<5lion. And the multi hi decry- 
ing aloud, began to defire him 
to do as he had ever done «nto 
them. But Pilate anlwered them, 
faying, Will ye that 1 releafe 
anto you tiie King of the Jews ? 
(Frn- he knew that t^e chief 
priefts had delivered him for 
envy. )But the chi'ef priefts moved 
the people, that he ftould rather 
releafe Barabbas unto them. 
And Pilate anlSvered, and faid 
again unto them. What will yc 
then that I ^all do unto him 
whom ye call the King of th6 
J ew5 ? And they cried o\it again. 
Cruelty him. Then Pilate faid 
onto them, Why, what evil hath 
he done ? And they cried out the 
more exceedingly, Crucify him. 
And fo Pilate, willing to content 
the people, releafed Barahba^ 
untolhem 3 and delivered Jefus, 
v/hen he had icourged him, to 
be crucified. And the foldiers 
led him away into the hall, c^^l- 
led Pretorium ; and they called 
togetiier the wlioie band. And 
they cloathed him with purple, 
and platted a crown of thorns, 
and put it about his head, and 
began to falute him, Hail, King; 
of the Jews. And they fmote 
him on the head with a reed, and 
did fpit upon him, and bowing 
their knees worihipped him. 
And when they had mocked him 
they took off the purple from 
him, and put his own clothes on 
him, aud led him out to crucify 
him. And they compel one Si- 
mon, a Cyrenian, who pafTed by, 
coming out of the country, the 
father of Alexander and Rufus,

to-bear hjscrofs. And th^ybnng 
him unto the place Golgotha, 
which is, being iaterprcted, the 
place of a fkuU. And they gave 
him to drink wine mingled with 
myrrh 5 but he received it not. 
And when they had crucified him, 
they parted his garments, cafling 
\rits upon them, what every man 
^ould talce. And it was the 
third hour, and they cruciiiei 
him. And the fupcriciipcion of 
bis accufation was written over, 
THE KING OF THE JEWS. 
And with him they crucify two 
thicvesj the one on his right hand, 
^nd the other on his left. And 
the Scripture was ful^^lled, v/hich 
faith, And he was numbered with 
the tranfgreiTors. And they that 
paiTed by railed on him, wagging 
their heads, and faying. Ah, 
thou that deilroyeft the teinple, 
jmd buiiaeft it in three days, fave 
thyfelf, and come down from the 
crofs. Likei,vife alfo the chief 
prTerts moci<:ing, faid among 
themfelve^, with the fcribes, He 
faved others, bimfelf be cannot 
fave. Let Chrifl the K.ing of 
Ifrael defcend dqw from the 
crofs,that \ye may fee and believe. 
And they that were crucified with 
him reviled him. And when 
the fixth hour was come, there 
was darknefsover th'^ whole land^ 
until the ninth houj:. And at the 
ninth hour Icfus cried with a 



he calleth Eii^s. And one ran 
and filled a fpjunge. full of vine- 
gar,, and put it on a reed, and 
gave him to drinJc, f^ying^ Let

And JcfviS: cried with a loud'

And there was -Ifo a ilrife among

Apd he faid, I tell thee, Peter,

unto them, it is enough. And 
he came out, and went, as he 
was wont, to the m<)unt of 
Olives ^ and his difciples alfo 
<'oUowed him. And when i.e 
was at the. place, he faid unto 
them. Pray that ye enter not 
into temptation. And he wai 
withdrawn from them about a 
fton«'s caft, and kneeled down, 
and prayed, faying, Father, if 
thou be willing, remove tiiis cup 
from me : neverthelel?, not my

there appeared an angei unto, 
him from heaven, itrengthehing 
him. And being in an agonyj 
he prayeJmbre earneftiy i and 
his fweat wa* as it were great 
drops of blood falling down tc

«p from prayer, and was come 
to his difciples, he found them 
flceping for forrow 5 and faid 
-unto them, Why fieep ys ? rile 
ind pray, hft ye enter into 
temptar.ion. And while he )et 
ipake, behold, a multitude, and 
lie ti^at was called Judas, one of 
'the twelve, wxnz before them, 
and drew Reir unto Jcfus to kifs 
him. But Jcfus faiJ uacohim,

which were about him faw wh it 
Wouid foiiow, they laid u no 
liim. Lord, lliall we fmite with 
the fword ? And one of them 
fmote the fervant of the high 
f riell, and cut off his rigllt car. 
And Jefus anfweied and faid, 
Su/J"er ye thus far. And he 
touched his ear, and healed him. 
Then Jefus faid unto tlie chief 
'f riefts and captains of the tem- 
ple, and the eiders which were 
come to him, Be ye come out as 
.agaiHfla thief, with fwords and 
•ftaves ? When I was iiaiiy with 
you in the temple, ye ilretched 
forth no hands againft me : but 
this is your hour, and the power 
of darknefs. Then took they 
him, and led him, and brought 
him into the high prieft's houfe. 
And Peter folk)W(5d afar off. 
And when they had kindled a 
fire in the midii of the hall, and 
were fet down together, Peter 
fat down among them. But a 
certain maid bel-veld him, as he 
fat by the fire, and earneiHy 
. looked upon him, and faid, This 
man was alfo with him. And 
he denied him, faying, Woman, 
1 know him not. And after a 



little while another faw him, and 
faid," Thou art alfo of them. 
Antit Peter faid, Man, I am not. 
And about the fpace of one hour 
after, another confidently af- 
firmed, faying. Of j truth, thi;*; 
fellow alfo, was with him j for 
be is a Galilean. And Peter 
faid, Man, 1 know not what 
thou faycil:. And immediately^ 
while he yet fpake, the cock, 
crew. And the Lord turned, and 
looked upon Peter ; and Peter 
remembereii the word of* the 
Lord^ how he had fiiid unto him. 
Before the cock crow, thou fnalt 
deny mc thrice. And Peter went 
out and wept bitterly. And the 
men that held Jei'us, mocked 
him, and fmote 'him. And 
when they had blindfolded him, 
they ftruck him on the face, and 
afked him, faying, Prophefy, 
who is it that fmote thee ? And 
many other things blafphemoully 
fpake they againtl hjni. And, as 
foon as it was day, the eiders of 
the people, and the chief priefts, 
and the fcribes came together, 
and led him into the^r counc:!, 
faying,- Art thou the Chrili i* 
Tell us. And he faid unto them. 
If 1 tell you, you will not be- 
lieve. And if 1 alio aik you, you 
will not anfwer me, nor let me 
go. Hereafter fhall the Son of 
man fit on the right hand of the 
power of God. Then faid they ail. 
Art ihou then the Son of God ? 
And he faid unto them, Yc fay-

becaufe that the wor/liippers,

thofe facrifices there is a remem- 
brance again made of dns, every 
year. For it is n»t poiTible that

Pilate therefore took Jefus, 
and fcourged him. And the 
foidiers platted a crown of thorns, 
and put it on his head, and they 
put on him a purple robe, and 
faid, Hail, king of the Jews ! 
And they fmote him with their 
hands. Pilate therefore went 
Yorth again, and fkith unto 
them, Behold, I bring him forth 
to you, that ye may know that 
1 find no fault in h>m. Then 
came Jefus forth, wearing the 
€rown of thorns, and the purple 
robe. And Pilate faith unto 
them, .Behold, the man. When 
the chief prielh therefore and 
officers faw him, they cried out, 
laying, Crucify him, crucify 
him. PiJate faith unto them, 
Take ye him, and crucify hirnj 
for 1 find no fault in him. The 
Jews anfweisd him, VVc have a 



law, and hy our law he ought to 
die, becaule he made bimfelt the 
Son of God. When Pilate tliere- 
forc heard that frying, he was 
the more afraid j and went agiia 
into the judgment-hall, anA 
faith unto Jefus, Whence art 
thou ? But Jefus gave him no 
anfwer. Then faith Pilate untO 
him, Speakeft thou not unto 
me ? Knoweft thou not that I 
have power to crucify thee, and 
have power to relcafe thee ? Jefus 
anfwered. Thou couldert ha\'^ 
no power at all againft me, ex- 
cept it were given thee fron^ 
above i therefore he that deliver- 
ed me unto thee hath the greater 
fin. And from thenceforth Pr- 
late fought to reieale him 5 but- 
the Jews cried out, faying, If 
thou iec thii man go, thou art' 
not Cicfar's friend : Whofoevei' 
maketh liimfelf a king, fpeaketh-

therefore heard that faying, he- 
brought Jefus foith, and fat- 
down in the judgment-feat, in at 
place that Is called the Pave-

But they cried out, Away wiih

faid, \ am the king of the Jews. 
Pilatc anfwcred. What I have 
Vyritten, I have v/ritten. I'hen 
the foldiers, when they had cru-

(and made four parts, to every

nww the coat was without feam, 
woven from the top throughout. 
They faid therefore among them -

taft lots for it, whofe it ihall be : 
that the Scripture might be ful-

my raiment among them, and 
for my vefture they did catl lots. 
Thefe things therefore the ioU 
diers did. Now there ftood oy

therefore had reccj-.ed the vine-

he bowed his head, and gave up 
the ghoil. The Jews therefore, 
becaufe it was the picparation, 
that the bodies fnould not remain 
upon the crofs upon thefabbath- 
day, (for that fabbath-day was 
an high day) befought Pilate 
that their legs might fcc broken, 
and that they might be taken 
away. Then came the foldiers 
and brali;e the legs cf the firft, 
and of the other which was cru- 
cifieo with him. But whe9 they 
capie to Jefus, and faw that he 
w.s dead already, they brake not

with a fpear pierced his fide, and

WHatfoever is born of

ih>t ovctcometh the world, even 
GUI' faith. Who is he that over- 
cometh the world, but he that j

ot Cod I Thif is he that came 
bv water and blood, even Jefis 
■ ; nor by water only, but 
• '^r and blood j?.nd it is 



the Spirit that beareth witnefs, 
becaufe the Spirit is truth. Tor 
there are three that bear record 
in Heaven, the Father, the 
Word, and the Holy Ghofl j and 
thefe three are one. And there 
are three that bear witnefs in 
e.*rth, the fpirit, and the water, 
and the blood : and thefe three 
agree in one. \i we receive the 
witnefs of men, the witnefs oi 
God is greater : for this is the 
witnefs of God, which he hath 
teftified of his Son. He that 
believeth on the San o( God, 
hath the witnefs of himfeif : he 
that believeth not God, hath 
made him a liar, becaufe he be- 
lieveth not the record that God 
gave of his Son. And this is 
the record, that God hatK given 
to us eternal life ; and this iife 
is in his Son. He that hath the 
Son hath life j and he that hath 
not the Son hath not life.

which faid^ Come up hi her,

diateJy 1 was in the Spirit 5 and 
hehold, a throne was fet in hea- 
ven, and one fat on the throne : 
and he that fat was to look upon 
like a jafper and a far dine ftone : 
and theic was a rainbow round 
about the throne, infi^htlike 
unto an emerald. And roujid 
about the throne were four and 
twenty feats j and upon th-e fe>its 
I faw four and twenty ciders fit- 
ting, clothed in white raiment j 
and they had on their heads 
crowns of gold : ahd out rj the 
throne proceeded lightnings, and 
thunderings, and voices. And 
there were {it\Gn lamps of iire , 
burning before the throne, which • 
are the (^ytn fpirits of God. 
Aiid before the throne, there 
was a fea of glafs, like unto 
cryilal. And in thcmidftof the 
throne, and round about the 
throne, were four beafts full of j 
e)es before and behind: And j 
the iuii bea£i was Ukc a Hen, { 



and the fecond beaft Tike a calf, 
and the third bealt had a face as 
a man, and the fourth beaft was 
like a flying eagle. And the 
four bealis had each of them fix 
wings about him } and they were 
full of eyes withia : and they red

And when thofe beafis give glo-

1 am now ready to be offered, 
and the time of my departure is

forth there is laid up for me a

the Lord the righteous Judge 
ihall give me at that day: and 
not to me onlyjbut unto ail them 
alfo that love his appe?>ring. Do 
thy diligence to come ihortly un-

fent Vw'orld, and is departed unto 
Theflalonica j Crefcens to Ga--

Only Luke is with me. Take

I fent to Ephefus. The cloak 
that I left at Troas v/ith Carpus,

And if the fon of peace be there,

axe certain men crepe in una-

and our Lord Jefus Chrift. I 
Will iheref)re put you inremen-

Ihis, how that the Lord having 
faved the people out of th* land 
of Egypt, aKerward delbojeJ

if they have kept my faying, 
they v;ill keep youi s alfo. But 
ail ihcfe things will they do unto 
you for my Name's fake, be- 
caufe they know not him that 
fen t me. If I had not come and 
fpoken unto them, they had not 
had fin; but now they have no' 
clouk for their lin. He that 
hateth me, hateth my Father 
:^ifo. If I had not done among 
them the works which none other 
man did, they had not had fin j 
but now they have both fecn^' 
and hated both me and my Fa- 
ther, But this Cometh to pafs, 
that the word might be fulfilled 
that is written in their law. 
They hated me without a cacfe. 
But when the Comforter is 
come, whom I will lend unto you 
from the Father, even the Spi-

from the Father, he fliall teftify

And all the angels ftood round

fell before the throne on their

nity of that holy Myftery, and 
the great peril ot' the unworthy 
receiving thereof 5 and fo to 
iearch and examine your own 
confcienccs, (and that not light- 
ly, and after the manner of dif- 
femblers with God j but fo) that 
ye may come holy and clean to 
fuch a heavenly fealt, in the 
marriage-garment required by 
God in holy Scripture j and be 
received as worthy partakers of 
that holy Table. 

The way and means thereto

and converfations by the rule of 
God's commandmenrs ; and 
wherein foever ye fhcill perceive 
yourfelves to have offended, ei- 
tiier by will, word, or deed, there 
to bewail your own finfulnera, 
and to confefs yourfelves to Al- 
mijihty God, with full purpofe 
of amendment of life. And ii 
ye fnaii perceive your offences to 
be fuch as are nbt only again.1 
God, but alfo a^ainft your 
aeighbours} then ye fhall re- 
concile yourfelves unto then:i : 
being ready to make rellitution 
and fatisfaition, according to the 
uttcrmoft of your powers, for 
all injuries ana wrongs done by 
you CO any other 5 and bein^ 
iikewife ready to forgive others 
who have offended you, as ye 
Would have forgivenefs of your 
off'ences at God's hand : for 
otherwife the receiving of *hvi 
holy Communion do;h nothing 
elic but increafe vour condem

malice or envy, or in any other 
grievous crime ; repent ye of 
your fms, or elfe coniC not to

that no man fhould come to the 
Holy Communion, but with a 
full truA in God's mercy, and 
w;th a quiet confcience j there-

who by this means cannot 
quiet his own confcience herein,

taticn, 

D Early beloved brethren, on 
i intend, by God's 

^race, to celebrate the Lord's 
riupper; unto which, in Goa's 
b^-half, I bid you all who are 
here prefent j anu befeech you 
ijr the Lord J^fu? Chrift's fake, 
chat ye will nc: refuse to come 
thereto, being fc lovingly called 
and bidden by God himfe'f. Ye 
kn^w hfAVv- grievous and unkind 
a thing it is, when a man hatb 
prepared a rich foaft, decked his 
rabie 



table with all kind of prbvifion, 
#0 that there hcketh noihing 
but the guefts to fit down j and 
yet they who are called (vvithoui; 
any caufe) moft unthankfully 
refufe to come. Which of you 
in fuch a cafe would not be 
moved ? Who would not think 
SI great injury and wrong done 
unto hinri ? Wherefore, moft 
dearly beloved in Chrift, take ye 
good heed, left ye, withdrawing 
jourfelves from this holy Sup- 
per, provoke God'b indignation 
againft you. It is an eafy mat- 
ter for a man to fay, I will not 
communicate, becaufe 1 am 
otherwife hindered with worldly 
bufinefs. But fuch excufes are 
not fo eafily accepted, and al- 
lowed before God. If any man 
fay, I am a grievous finner, and 
therefore am afraid to come j 
wherefore then do ye not repent 
and amend ^ When God calieth 
you, are ye not aihamed to fay, 
ve will not come ? When ye 
ihould return to God, will ye 
excufe yourfelves, and fay, ye 
are not ready ? Confider earneft- 
ly whh youifelves, how little 
fuch feigned excufes will avail 
before God. I'hey who refufcd 
the feaft in the Gofpei, becaufe 
they had bought a farm, or 
would try their yokes of oxen, 
or becaufe they were married, 
were not fo excufed, but count- 
ed unworthy of the heavenly 
feaft. Vv^herefore, according to 
mine Office, 1 bid you in the 
Name of God, I cafi you in 
Chrift's behalf, I exhort you,', 
as ye love your owJi falvauon,"* 



that ye will be partakers of this 
Holy Communion. And as the 
Son of God did vouchfafe to 
yield up his foul by death upon 
the crofs, for y6ur falvation j fo 
it is your duty to receive the 
Communion, in remembrance of 
the facrifice of his death, as he 
himfelf hath commanded : 
Which if ye fhall neglc<^ to do, 
confider with yourfelves, how 
great is your ingratitude to God, 
and how fore punifhment hang- 
eth over your heads for the fam.e, 
when ye wilfully abftain from 
the Lord's Table, and feparacc 
from your brethen, who come 
to feed on the banquet of that 
moft heavenly food. Thefe 
things if ye earneftiy confider, 
ye will, by God's grace, return 
to a better mind : for the obtain- 
ing wheieof we iliall not ceafe to 
make our humble petitions unto 
Almighty God, our heavenly 
Father.

D Early beloved in the Lord, 
ye who mind to come to

Paul cxhorteth all perfons dili- 
gently to try and examine them-

eat of that Bread, and drink of

Except a man be born of water

^ After ivk'uh he Jhall fay this 
£xkcrtation foUiimng-: 

BEloved, ye hear in this Gof- 
pel tUe exprefs words of our 
Saviour Chrift, that, except a 
man be born of Water and of th« 
Spirit, he cannot enter into the

If ye endure cha/iening, God

For what fon is he whom the 
Father chafteneth not? But if 
ye be without chaftifement, 
whereof all are partakers, then 
are ye bailards, and not fons. 
Furtherrriore, we have had fa-

Ow is Chrift rifen from 
the dead, and become the 
firft fruits of them that Hept. 
For fmce by man csjne death^ 
by man came aifo the refurrec- 
tion of the dead. For as in 
Adam all die, even fo in Chriit 
ihall ail be made alive. BuC 
every man in his own order : 
Chrift the firft fruits; afterward 
they that are Chrift's, at his 
coming. Then cometh the tnd^ 
when he (hall have delivered up 
the kingdom to God, even tlw 
Father ; when he fhall have put 
down ail rule, and all authority^ 
and power. For he muft reiga 
till he hath put all enemJ.es un- 
der his feet. The laft enemy 
that fhall be deftroyed is death : 
f^ he hath put all things under 
his feet. But when he faith all 
things are put under him, it is 
manifeft that he is excepted 
which did put all things under 
him. And when all things ft.all 
be fnbdued unto him, then (hall, 
thel-onalfo himfeif be fubje^b* 
unto him that put all things 
under him, that God may be ail 
in all. Fife what fhall they d*^ 
which are baprized for the dead, 
if the dead rife not at all ? Wlty 



JBuriar cf -the D £ A d'; 



are they tht;n baptized tor the 
deaU ? And why ftand we In jeq-' 
pardy every hour? 1 prot?ft.i?y 
your rejoicing, which 1 have in 
Chrift Jelusour Lord, 1 die dai- 
ly. If after the manner o^'.rhen 
1 have fought with ^be^ils at' 
iEphefus, what advantageth it 
me, if the dead rife not r Jet, us 
eat and drink, for to-morrow 
we die. Be not deceived : Evil 
communications corrupt good 
manners. Awake to righteguf- 
Befs, and (in not : for fom^ have 
not the knowledge of God. I 
fpeak this to your fh;*me. But 
fome man will fay, How are the 
dead raifed up ? and with what 
body do they come ? Thou fool, 
that which thou fowelt is not 
quickened, except it die. And 
that which thou foweft, thou 
foweil not that body that fhall 
be, but bare grain j it may 
chance of wheat, or of fome 
other grain. But Cod givcth it 
a body as it hath pleafed him j 
and to every feed his own body. 
All lieih is not the fame fleih ; 
but there is one kind of flefli of 
men, another flefh of beafts, 



incorruptlon ! It is fxDwn in dlf- 
n^noqrj it is.raifed in^glory : it 
is fown in weaknefs ^ it is raife4 
in power : it is fowji- a jiaturai 
body J it is raifed a fpiritual bo- 
dy. There is a natural body» 
and there is a fpiritual body. 
And fo it is vyritten. The firft 
man Adam, was made a living 
ifoul, the laft Adam was made a 
quickening Spirit. Howbeit, 
that vyas not firil which is fpiri- 
tual, but that which is natural ^ 
and afterward that wliich is fpi- 
ritual. The firft man is of the 
earth, earthy : The fecond man 
is the Lord from heaven. As is 
the earthy, fuch are they that are 
earthy : and ah is the heavenly, 
fuch are they alfo that are hea- 
venly. And as we have borne 
the image of the earthy, we fliall _ 
alfo bear the irnage of the hea- ^ 
veiily. Now this 1 fay, brethren, 
that flefh and blood cannot in- 
herit the kingdom of God ; 
neither doth corruptioTi inherit 
incorruption. Beliold, I fhow 
you a myftery : We ihall not all 
fleep, but we ihall all be changed, 
iin a moment, in the twinkling; 



another of iilhes, and anothft i of an eye, at the Init trump : 
1 For the trumpet ihall found, and 
j the dead fhall be raifed incor- 
j ruptiblf, and we fhall be changed. 
I For this corruptible mutbput o» 
I incorruption, and this mortal 
mnft put on immortality. So 
when this corruptible ihall- have 
put on incorruption, and this 
mortal Ihail have put on immor- 
tality, then jhall be brought to 
pafs the faying that is U'ritten, 
Death it fv\ allowed up in vidorv 
U 



ot birds. There are alfo celef- 
tial bodies, and bodies terrellri- 
al : But the glory of the celeftial 
is one, and the glory of the ter- 
refbriai is another. There is 
one glory of the fun, and. ano- 
ther glory of the moon, and 
another glory of the fears : For 
one rtar differeth from .another 
itar in glory. So alfo is the re- 
furredfion of the dead, it is

II The counfel of the Lord 
ihall endure for ever, and the 
thoughts of his heart from gene- 
ration t» generation. 

12 Blelled are the people 
whofe God is the Lord Jehovah j 
and bleHed are the folk that he 
hath chofen to him, to be his 
mheritance. 

13 The Lord looked down 
from heaven, and beheld all the 
children of men } from the ha- 
bitation of his dwelling, hecon- 
fidcreth. ail them that dwell on 
the earth. 

14 He fafhioneth all the 
hearts of them, and underlland- 
cth all their works. 

15 There is no king that can 
be faved by the multitude of an 
hoft J neither is any mighty man 
delivered by much ftrength. 

16 A horfe i^ counted but a 
vain thing to fave a man j i-.ei- 
ther fhall he deliver any man by 
his great ftrength. 

17 Behold, the eye of the 
Lord is upon them that fear him, 
and upon them that put their 
truft in his mercy; 

18 To deliver their foul from 
death, and to feed them in the 
time of dearth, 

19 Our foul hath patiently 
tarried for the Lord ; tor he is 
our help and our fhield, 

20 For our heart fhall rejoice 
in him ; bccaufe we have hoped 
in his holy Name. 

21 Let thy merciful kindnefs, 
O Lord, be upon us, like as we 
io put our trull in rhee.

I Will alway give thanks unto 
the Lord j his praife fhall 
eser be in my m^^uth. 

2 My foul /hall make her 
boalt in the Lord; the humble 
fli.ill hear thereof, and be glad. 

3 O praife the Lord with me, 
and let us magnify his Name 
together. 

4 I fought the Lord, and he 
heard me ; yea, he delivered me 
ou^of all my fear. 

5 They had an eye unto him, 
and were lightened : and their 
faces were not aihamed. 

6 Lo, the poor crieth, and the 
Lord hearethhim ; yea, and fav- 
eth him out of all his troubles. 

7 The Angel of the Lord tar- 
rieth round about them that fear 
him, and delivereth them, 

8 O tafte, and fee how graci- 
ous the Lord is ; hlefTcd is the 
man that trufteth In him. 

9 O fear the Lord, )Z that arc 
his Saints ; for they that fear 
him lack nothing. 

10 The lions do lack, and fuf- 
fer hunger ; but they who feek 
the Lord fhall want no manner 
of thing that is good. 

IT Come, ye children, and 
hearken unto me ; 1 will leach 
you the fear of the Lord. 

12 What man is he that luft- 
eth to live, and would fain fee 
good days ? 

i^ Keep thy tongue from evil, 
and thy lips, that they fpeak no 
guile. 

14 Efchew evil, and do good ; 
feek peace, and cnfue it.

to root out the rennembraiice of 
them from the earth. 

17 Tlie righteous cry, and the 
Lord heareth them, and deliver- 
eth them out of all their troubles. 

18 The Lord is nigh unto 
them that are of k contrite heart, 
and will favc fuch as be of an 
an humble fervant. 

19 Great are the troubles of 
the righteous 3 but the Lord de- 
livereth him out of all. 

2,0 He keepeth ail his bones, 
fp that not one of them is broken. 

21 But misfortune fhall ilay

of thy chofen, and rejoice in the 
giadncfs of thy people, and give 
fhanks with thine inheritance. 

6 We have finned with our 
fathers j we have done amlfs, 
and dealt wickedly. 

7 Our Fathers regarded not 
thy wonders in Egypt, neither 
kept they thy great goodhefs in 
remembrance J but were difobe- 
dient at the fea, even at the 
Red fea. 

8 Neverthelefs, he helped 
them for his Name's fake, that 
he might make his pov/er to be 
J:nown. 

9 He rebuked the Red Sea 
alfo, and it ^as dried up 5 £b he 
led them through the deep, as 
through a wildernefs. 

10 And he faved them from 
the adverfaries" h^nd, and deli- 
vered them from the hand of the! 
enerny. 

1 1 As for thofe that troubled | 
them, the waters overwhelmed 
them ; there was not one of 
them left. 

12 Then believed they his 
words, and fangpraife unto him. 

13 But within a while they 
forgat his works, and would not 
abide his counfel. 

14 But lul^ came upon them 
In the uildernefs, and they 
rerapted God in the defert. 

I c And he gave them their 
defire, and fent leannefs withal 
in:o their foul. 

16 They angered Mofes alfo 
in their tentsi and Aaron the 
faint of the Lord. 
17 So the earth opened, and 



fwallowcd up Dathan, and co- 
vered the congregation of Abi- 
ram. 

18 And the f.re was kindled 
in their company } the flame 
burnt up the ungodly. 

19 They made a calf in Ho- 
reb, and worfhipped the jnolten 
image. 

20 Thus they turned their 
glory into the fimilitude of a 
calf that eaterh hay, 

21 And they forgat God their 
Saviour who had done fo great 
things in Egypt j 

22 Wondrous works In the 
land of Ham ; aud fearful things 
by the Red Sea. 

23 So he faid he would have 
deftroyed them, had not Mofes 
his chofen ftood before him in 
the gap, to turn away his wrath- 
ful indignation, leii he fhould 
dellroy them. ^. -., 

24 Yea, they thought-^ifewii 
cf that pleafant land-, and gave 
no credence unto his word j 

25 But murmured in their 
tents, and hearkened not unto 
the voice of the Lord. 

26 Then lift he up his hand 
^gainft them, to overthrow them 
in the wildtrncfs; 

27 To cafl out their feed 
among the nations, and to fcat- 
ter them in the lands. 

2S TTiey joined themfclves 
unto Baal-peor, and ate the 
offerings of the dead. 

29 1 hus they provoked him 
to anger with their own inven-

among them. 

30 Then ftood up Phinees,

31 And that \v2s ccjnted un-

32 They angered him alfo at

punirned MoA^s for their fake* 5 

33 Bcc.jufe they provoked his 
fpirit, fo that he fpakeunadvi- 
fedly with his lips. 

3-» Neither dedroved they the 
heathen, as the Lord contimand- 
cd thrm : 

35 But were mingicd aKiong 
the heathen, and learned their 
works. 

36 Infomuch that they wor- 
fhipped their idols, which turned 
to their own decay j yea, they 
ofr'ercd their fons apd their 
daughters cnto devih j 

37 And fned innocent Hood, 
even the hlood of their fons and 
of their daughters, whom they 
offered unto the idols of Ca- 
r.aan ; and the land was defiled 
with blood. 

38 Thus were they fl:ained 
with their own v/orks, and went 
a whoring with their own inven- 
tions. 

39 Therefore vv^s the wrath 
of the. Lord kindled ajiainft his 
people, infomuch that he abhor- 
red his own inheritance. 

40 And he gave tihem over 
into the hand of the. heathen j 
aad tbey that hated thenn were 
lords over them. 

41 Their enemies apprpffed 
them, and had them in fubjec- 
ticn. 

4z Many a time did he deli- 



ver them ; but they rebelled 
againft him with their own in- 
ventions, and were brought down 
in their wickednefs. 

43 Neverthclefs, when he faW 
their advcrfity, he heard their 
complaint* 

44 He thought Ijpon his co* 
vcnant, and pitied them, accord'- 
ing unto the multitude of his 
mercies ^ yea, he mude all thofc 
that \tA them away captive to

45 Deliver us, O Lord ouf
